. good morning. it is friday, june 15, 2012. welcome to studio 57 at the cbs broadcast center. i'm charlie rose. gayle king is off today. emotional testimony brings tears to the jury's eyes in the jerry sandusky trial. president obama asks for time to fix the economy. mitt romney says it's time for new ideas. we'll talk politics with house democratic leader nancy pelosi. i'm erica hill. that massive colorado wildfire jumps a highway and sends people running for safety. one legendary wild west town could make history again for all the wrong reasons. we'll show you why. but first, as we do every morning, we begin with i look at today's eye-opener. your world in 90 seconds. >> of course the economy isn't
7:01 am
where it needs to be. of course we have a lot more work to could. everybody knows that. >> president obama and mitt romney square off over issue number 1. he's been president for 3.5 years. and talk is cheap. >> mitt romney is like, no. >> a busy night for the president. packed with fundraisers. >> manhattan with sarah jessica parker. considering the fact that carrie bradshaw didn't have one black friend in six seasons of sex and the city. isn't it? >> he betrayed each and every one of these boys. it was a betrayal that was colossal. >> prosecutors of the jerry sandusky trial are close to wrapping up their case. >> victim number 6 said he was molested in a shower. >> it sparked a police investigation in 1998. but the prosecutors never filed any charges. >> there was an opportunity, missed opportunity in 1998. it was missed by multiple people. the deadly wildfire tearing through northern colorado is forcing more evacuations this morning. kevin costner comes out on
7:02 am
top in his court battle with fellow actor stephen baldwin on a device to clean up the gulf of mexico. >> when people thought they saw a ufo. but it was a drone. >> it's -- >> i can't get on twitter. >> all right. >> all that -- >> everybody has in-laws. everybody has in-law problems. dude, you're up against spart cuss. maybe you do. >> and all that matters. >> all i can say is that my life is pretty plain. i like watching puddles gather rain. >> blind melon classic, i've ever heard. >> he's supposed to be gay. no one knows if he's gay or not gay. i used to -- >> people say the same about you. >> people say the same about you. [ laughter ] captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning."
7:03 am
jurors in the jerry sandusky trial sex abuse trial are waking up to a three-day weekend. >> they may need it after the last of the former accusers took the stand on thursday. armen keteyian here with the story of another very emotional day in court. armen, good morning. >> good morning, erica. it was one of the most dramatic days of testimony yet. three young men described in graphic detail how the person they once looked at as a mentor betrayed their trust. testimony against jerry sandusky essentially wrapped up thursday with his final accuser telling jurors the former penn state coached raped him repeatedly. the man, now 18, say the attacks took place in sandusky's basemebas baseme basement. he would sometimes scream, tell him to get off me but his calls for help went unanswered. when prosecutors asked why he didn't resist. he simply said what am i going do, he's a big guy, way bigger
7:04 am
than me. >> after i long pause erk pdon't want to look at him i sniemtd inspiring amount of courage that we're seeing demonstrated in this courtroom. these are extraordinarily difficult things to talk about. >> earlier thursday, another witness told the court sandusky called himself the tickle monster. he described one day in 1998 how inside the penn state football shower a naked sandusky hugged him from behind saying, i am going to squeeze your guts out. afterward, the witness told his mom who alerted authority for the first time. >> there was an opportunity, a missed opportunity in 1998, an opportunity that wasn't missed just by one person, it was missed by multiple people. >> an opportunity missed with a sting operation that could have landed sandusky in jail more than a decade ago. thursday, the lead officer testified he heard sandusky say to the mother, i wish i could get forgiveness. i know i won't get it from you. i wish i were dead.
7:05 am
but charges were never filed. the defense is expected to begin its case on monday. >> are you looking forward to presenting your case? >> cbs news legal analyst jack ford is here. let me begin with this. armen, how did they find these witness that is are testifying? >> well, charlie, in the words of the elite investigator, it was a daunting task to find them. they did not want to come forward. ironically, one of the ways, jerry sandusky wrote his autobiography, it was called touched, in that autobiography were pictures sandusky placed in the book. the investigator looked at the pictures and was able to track down many of the victims through sandusky himself. >> do you think he will take the stand and depend fend himself? >> yes. we have been told that sandusky will testify in his own defense next week. frankly, being in that courtroom, i would say it would be impossible that he wouldn't try to at least explain his actions.
7:06 am
because he is getting to use a phrase, crushed inside the courtroom right now. >> how do you look at this as a prosecutor, jack, in terms of whether or not he should take the stand or even continue with the case at this point? >> at this juncture, the prosecution has gotten just about everything they want into the case. they were able to do it quickly. which is important. we've seen trials drag out. they were able to do it quickly because they had an array of accusers. they came in, didn't have a lot of documents to put in, didn't have a parade of experts. that's why a case can go in fairly complicated within a couple of days. the prosecution are very comfortable with what they've done. they should be. we haven't gotten to the defense case yet. the prosecution has come -- they're probably looking at this saying, you know what, if jerry sandusky gets on the stand, that's great for us. we have all sorts of stuff to come after him with. >> there's this element of penn state too and how involved the university was or was not and some of that actually came up with -- the investigator saying to be quite frank, penn state was not very quick in getting
7:07 am
this information. >> yes. they had requested records and e-mails from the university. the university was dragging its feet. i think it would be fair to say in providing that kind of information. look from the start i was at this thing from the beginning and it would be fair to say that penn state has wrapped a bubble around itself and has been reluctant to present information not only to the media that have made requests but to the attorney general's office and other independent investigators. >> is penn state on trial too? >> i think it is. when you look back from 1998 to 2001 and all the things that happened with sandusky and top level administrators being informed of it and the fact that no charges were ever filed and a lot of these case wrs basically submerged, yes, i think they are on trial. >> in the court of public opinion. in terms of penn state, any kind of liability, that's going to have to wait until civil suits that get filed. i'm sure what you're hearing here is setting the stage for some arguments that will be made against penn state saying you should have done a lot more than you did before. >> jack, armen, thank you.
7:08 am
president obama heads to chicago today for father's day weekend. on thursday, the president and mrs. obama visited one world trade center in new york city. the building is still under construction. the president signed a beam. he wrote, we remember, we rebuild, we come back stronger." >> early in the day the president and mitt romney were in ohio campaigning on the election's number one issue. the economy. >> romney said the president's approach has failed. but the president linked romney to republican policies he said led the economy into trouble in the first place. >> we were told that it was okay to put two wars on the nation's credit card. that tax cuts would create enough growth to pay for themselves. that's what we were told. so how did this economic theory work out? if you want to give the policies of the last decade another try, then you should vote for mr. romney. >> now, you may have heard that
7:09 am
president obama is on the other side of the state and he's going to be delivering a speech on the economy. he's doing that because he hasn't delivered a recovery for the economy. and he's going to be a person of eloquence as he describes his plans for making the economy better but don't forget, he's been president for three and a half years and talk is cheap. >> with us this morning is house democratic leader nancy pelosi. she was the first woman to be speaker of the house. she's marking her 25th year in congress. we welcome her to studio 357. welcome. >> thank you. good morning. >> the president says he needs more time. what is the one big idea he has for his second term to fix the economy if he is re-elected? >> i think we've seen quite a bit of that so far. in fact, the president talked about it yesterday. it's about jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs. >> that's the problem. >> the president was a job creator from day one.
7:10 am
the recovery package that we all put forth created three and a half million jobs. but as you watch the president speak, think of the abc's of job creation. a, american made, the auto rescue being one example. b, build america, whether it's broadband to water projects and bridges and everything in between. c, a sense of community that the president talked about that we're all in this together and the education of our children that relates to the innovation and competitiveness for jobs at home and globally and d, doing all of this to reduce the pbeen on this course, it has has taken a step forward and it will continue to do so. what the other side is saying, what more of president bush did that got us into this fix in the first place. >> democrats believe the
7:11 am
effective way to campaign in this election is to blame president bush? >> well, it's not a question of blaming president bush. i think the whole world knows that president bush got us into this fix in the first place. the point is, what governor romney is putting forth is the same thing that president bush advocated and got us in this fix in the first place. the point is that you can't -- you have to point out the different paths that the two candidates have taken and president obama is going forward. governor romney is taking us back to the bush -- >> governor romney argues the president has had three years to fix it and he has not. >> it's a deep ditch as the president says that the bush administration got us into and president obama is taking us out. whether it's the financial meltdown that hurt our economy and induced revenues to the treasury. two unpaid wars.
7:12 am
tax cuts for the wealthy that got us into the deficit situation,a. b, that tax cuts at the high end and those policies did not create jobs and president obama, i think, has been very good about trying to be bipartisan and not assigning blame unless you want to bring up the same proposal and say let's do what & we did that got us in the fix in the first place. >> it is a supreme court decision on -- you played a vital role in getting health care passed. are you prepared for the fact that the supreme court may declare a whole of a health care that you passed and helped pass unconstitutional. what will you do if the supreme court says that? >> first of all, i think that we're ironclad on the constitutionality of the bill. we believe in the constitution, we believe in judicial review. >> the supreme court says it's
7:13 am
unconstitutional. so what do you do? what happens to health care? >> i think it will be fixed in our favor. >> what if it's not? >> there are a couple of options. declare the whole bill unconstitutional. the other is that they sever, it's severable and take pieces, we'll be prepared for any eventuality. >> tell me what you're prepared to do. >> many things that are in place right now be hard to see that the court would roll back. but over 80 million people have already taken advantage of the wellness and examinations that they have. the children, little children cannot be discriminated against. kids are 26 and under are on their parents' policies if they -- the family decides that in other words, many thangs it would be really hard to see them roll back. that the public has become used to. but i think it's very important
7:14 am
for us to again herald what many of these things are so that they will have staying power. i think really what's also important about this is that we have to -- if we're going to have the right approach to all the things we've talked about, job creation, fair taxes and how we deal with healthy america, we have to change the politics in america and we have to dare to disclose, amend the constitution, reform the system, elect reformers to get that job done. >> i want to make sure erica gets at least one question in. >> isn't part of performing that getting congress to work together? you said recently, in fact in a divided washington under president bush, it was less divisive, less partisan, it worked better? how can president obama improve that if he hasn't been able to do that already, get people to work together? >> the point is we cooperated with president bush to the extent that we could.
7:15 am
we passed the biggest energy bill in the history of our country. we worked together to do aversion of stimulus. more inclined to his -- in his direction, but nonetheless, we got the job done. tarp, i don't have to tell you how the democrats rescued the president had that awful vote we had to take. what is happening is the republicans now are being obstructionists to this president. they have said that the most important thing they could do is make sure he does not succeed and that's just wrong for the country. and so we would hope that if we go forward, there would be more balance. but i think it's also important for the public to know that obstruction is the agenda of the republ republican party. they don't believe in clean air, clean water. you name it. >> thank you so much. good to have you here. >> thank you. we go to correspondent, host of face the nation, bob schieffer.
7:16 am
>> good morning. >> so bob, where are we in terms of what -- how you see these two competing proposals for fixing the economy? the president on the one hand saying i need more time, on the other hand saying if governor romney is elected, it means bush policies. on the other hand, governor romney says that the president has had enough time to fix it and he hasn't. >> you know, i thought erica just kind of hit the nail on the head there with that question. when she talked about but how are you going to get the two sides to work together? we heard these two candidates yesterday lay out very different ideas about how to get this economy going again. but what nobody on either side seems to be talking about, charlie, it seems to me is okay, here's my idea and these guys had their idea. but how as president can i get the two sides to work together. the president said himself in his speech shall the problem is the stalemate. what is it that he can do that he's not doing now to change
7:17 am
that? and what could mitt romney do to change that, that the president is not able to do? it seems to me that's where this election is. it's going to be about governance, not so much about big ideas. about how to get those at least some of those ideas, how to put them into practice. >> because the american people and we know this, bob, really want to see something happen where people work together, why are they both seemingly so afraid to put forth that idea? >> well, the country is very divided. we know that. people are -- i've never seen in all the time i've been in washington that the gap is so wide. but people get locked into these positions. it costs so much money now to get the money to run for congress. once you get there, your positions, you're set in stone because you have to sign off with so many interest groups.
7:18 am
it's very difficult for anybody to come off that. i've said this before. but we used to elect people not just because of their general principles and we agreed with them, but we elected them because we trusted their judgment. people have to change. people have to make compromise. right now, you've got washington that is simply unable to compromise. congress sometimes even can't agree on how to do things that both sides want to do. so which ever one of these men can figure out how to break that gridlock, i think that is the big idea that people are waiting to hear. >> speaking of governor romney, bob, you have him on face the nation this weekend. do you think you can discover from him some sense much how he can break this gridlock that exists in washington? >> i think that is a question that i should ask him. i'd be interested to see what his ideas are on that. because i think that's where this thing is going to be. this election is really close. every poll right now that we
7:19 am
have shows that it is too close to call right now. if these numbers get worse, these economic numbers, that's going to be advantage romney. if they get better, it will be advantage obama. but at the end of the day, we still got to figure out the big issue is how do you break this gridlock. >> on sunday, i'll be watching. >> we all will. >> bob, thank you. bob will interview mitt romney on face the nation this sunday. you can catch that here on cbs. he'll also speak with former democratic party chairman howard dean and republican senator

[ laughter ] >> welcome back to "cbs this morning." firefighters in northern colorado make progress in one part of a huge wildfire there, the flames continue spreading to other areas. that is leading to new evacuations. rick salinger of cbs 4 is in bellvue, colorado. rick, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, erica.
7:31 am
we are at a national guard checkpoint at the mouth of the wrist canyon. beyond here, more than a hundred structures have been damaged or destroyed. you've got to keep in mind, this is only one area of the fire where many homes have been destroyed. containment is growing in some areas of the high park fire, but in one section, the blaze jumped the river, triggering a new round of evacuations. residents of the glacier area were given just 20 minutes to get out. >> those helicopters that are right there, those are flying over my house right now. >> reporter: officials know their work is far from over. >> our plan is to be patient and work with this fire in a phased situation as it moves on its terms, which it's going to, and we'll keep up with it. that may mean we're doing this for days. >> reporter: some evacuees are finally getting word whether their canyon homes were burned or spared. what did you learn? >> we just found out our house is still standing. so is our neighbor's.
7:32 am
>> she managed to get her neighbors on the phone to give them the good news. >> i'm not kidding. we are still there honestly. we're still there. >> cherie says she knows the shifting winds means her home is still in danger for weeks and possibly months to come. this fire has already passed through here leaving behind charred ground. the blaze is like a multiheaded monster. they contained one area, but then another fire breaks out. back to you. >> rick salinger of cbs 4. den jer, rick, thank you. one year ago this week, the monument fire burned hundreds of acres in arizona. that disaster led to a water war. one of america's wild west towns is suing the federal government it would become a landmark legal case. our own jeff glor is back from tombstone, arizona. jeff? >> charlie, good morning. for 130 years, tombstone has been known as the town too tough
7:33 am
to die. some say it might if this fight doesn't go their way. arizona's famed huachuca mountains are stunning. they're also scorched. the monument fire that ripped through the coronado forest last june left thousands of trees blackened and bare. >> this is the base of marshall canyon. >> as kevin rudd showed us, defenseless against historic floods one month later. >> all what you see, the boulders, gravel, sand was deposited at the base. >> the problem, tombstone, still the site of daily gunfight reenactments. former home of wyatt he were and doc holiday. ? their 26-mile pipeline was badly damaged. >> what percent of water that tombstone had a year ago does it have now? >> less than 25% coming from
7:34 am
these springs. >> george barns says that puts them at imminent risk. >> what's the worst case scenario for tombstone? >> worst case scenario, a fire in the historic district. >> and you have no water. >> not enough. >> tombstone -- >> could be. burned twice before. >> to fix the pipeline, the city needs to bring in more heavy machinery. which the forest service has balked at citing the wilderness act because in part it might deserve the mexican spotted owl. tombstone sued in federal court for full access, claiming they've used the pipe since long before the wilderness act, since before arizona was a state. >> it isn't just a spotted owl we're concerned about. >> jim upchurch coronado forest supervisor says he needs to balance the needs of the land alongside the needs of the city. tombstone is asking for too much. >> all the pipes, all the water systems that existed prior to the fire and floods are -- have been replasd or repaired and are providing water to the city.
7:35 am
>> the federal government says you haven't given them specifics on what you want to do. you want to change the system as opposed to just fix it. >> nothing could be farther from wrong. the only thing we want to do is re-establish what we had before. essentially, what was here before is gone. >> the fundamental disagreement over who should have control here. local or federal authorities. it's reminded many of the sage brush rebellion of the 1970s and '80s. disputes over environmental policy famously flared up. >> you're talking about the sage brush rebellion. >> yes indeed. >> count me in as a rebel. >> it's been a host of outside interests, including the conservative goldwater institute. which is paying all of tombstone's legal bills. >> there is a theory in the western united states that there's some sort of a plan afoot to essentially pull people out of the federal land. >> do you feel like the federal government is come to take your land?
7:36 am
>> they've done it. >> the forest service will not comment about land ownership issues while the case is in court. for now, absent bulldozers and backhoes, tombstone has brought in shovel brigades to work by hand. >> we need to prove to people that this is an emergency. this is water that tombstone has had for 131 years and it's essential to our survival. >> so jeff joins us. where do they stand, this town of tombstone in getting their water in. >> well, they say they have right now from some of these springs, less than 25%. the government says it's been repaired and fixed. there's a massive gap between what the forest service says is available to them and what tombstone says is available. there are two separate issues here. there is one, the issue of the repairs to the pipelines, the government has granted some permits. they'll grant some more. it's just a lot of messy red tape. the bigger issue here is the issue over land ownership.
7:37 am
because tombstone says they have papers showing they've owned this continuously since 1881. used it since then, right? >> yes. >> they should be able to do whatever they want there. the forest service says no. our land, our rules. >> how will they set that will? >> that's what's in court right now. >> when will we have -- >> this wound its way to the supreme court for an injunction last week that was denied. so tombstone was not able to bring in more heavy machinery, but the battle continues in the court system. it could take some time. what tombstone is saying is valuable time is being wasted. >> necessity need the water now. the army had a birthday party in washington yesterday. it has been around for 237 years. we'll talk to the chief of staff, ray odierno about the army's mission and also the mission in the future. all of that on "cbs this morning."

the united states army was established 237 years ago this week. it now has 1.1 million soldiers on active reserve and national guard duty. it also faces some of the biggest challenges in its history. >> here in studio 57 to discuss some of those challenges, genre odierno, the army's 38th chief of staff. we're pleased to have you, welcome. >> thank you. thank for having us. >> erica was talking about all the medals. >> each stripe represents six months in a combat zone. >> a lot of some of that was in iraq. >> yeah. >> i want to look back briefly and then look ahead. what's the most important lesson the army learned from iraq? >> i think what i would tell you is we found out we didn't have a full understanding of the inner workings of iraq when we got in there. i call it the societal
7:43 am
devastation of iraq. we had a misunderstanding of that. we didn't understand the complexities that were underneath the society. once we remove -- the complexities started boil. we didn't have an understanding of those. first went in there and didn't quite understand this. what the army did learn is that we can adapt. when we figured out the environment, we were able to adapt our operations and able to gain some sub ses over iraq. so i'm pretty proud of how our young leaders were able to adapt and adjust, we were able to bring the level of violence and make progress in iraq. >> there have been significant changes in the world, whether a rise economically of asia, whether the middle east, the arab spring. what does the army adjust, how does the army adjust to a world that's in change and warfare that may not be like what it's seen in the past? >> one of the challenges i have and the army has is that we have two competing demand right now.
7:44 am
one is, we still have 67,000 soldiers in afghanistan. so i got to make sure that we stay trained and ready to ensure that everyone we send to afghanistan through the end of 2014 is prepared and ready to go. but the other challenge i have is i got to look forward. and what's going to happen in the next five, six, seven, eight, nine years. how do we adjust the arm toy meet those needs. the environment is changing. the art of warfare continues to change. there's new things like cyber. >> who is the enemy? >> that's the thing. it could be a state, it could be a nation state, it could be insurgents, terrorist, nonstate actors. it ce a ion all i could come up with several scenarios where you would have all of those involved. it's about the complexity of th we might have to conduct. so in my mind, it's about
7:45 am
developing leaders who can operate in this environment. and who can understand and who can lead. we have to have capability of to provide a variety of options to the senior leaders. different levels ofo battalions that are going to afghanistan and they know there's a drawdown coming and there's a date specific, 2014, what do you say to them about the mission and what do you say to them about what's required of them? >> what's interesting inn afghanistan. so they understand their mission to change them. they understand that where we're at now is, it's really about putting the afghan army out in front the next couple of years. yes we still do operations jointly. the mission now is to do that. but also do it with them, partnering with them. so in two years, they'll have the capability to provide security when we leave. >> you've mentioned leadership a
7:46 am
number of times when we were th. how important is that leadership that you have in the army and expertise is leadership. and in my mind -- >> those things are not easy to -- ve tining fm you come in as a new officer or noncommissioned officer all the way through your general officer. we constantly adjust, discuss, talk and try to understand how you conduct yourself in very different situations. i think we can add a lot to others in helping them to see how we go through our problem solving and what we have learned about leadership in very difficult situations. you know, the most difficult time to lead is when it's in a situation of somewhat what i call controlled chaos. >> is that iraq? >> which is iraq. which is afghanistan at some time. we don't realize is we give a
7:47 am

this is the most important election of our lifetime. and if money is speech. speech that informs voters and an informed electorate is the bedrock of democracy, then for the good of this divided nation, i say barack obama and mitt romney should each immediately get their own cable channels dedicated solely to their election. oh, that was quick. it is 8:00. welcome back to "cbs this morning." i'm charlie rose. gayle king is off. i'm erica hill. the people of greece face a decision this weekend that could affect of rest of their lives and also the lives of millions of others around the world. they're being asked to choose a new government and the outcome is likely to have an enormous impact, not only on the rest of
8:01 am
europe but also here in the united states. we're in athens with a look at the struggling economy through the eyes of one man who says he's fed up. >> on sunday, greece heads to the polls. the key issue in this election is austerity. the combination of a massive financial crisis and austerity cuts have left one in five greeks unemployed and thousands homeless. leo spends most of his day drinking coffee and playing back gam monday with the people he calls the new homeless in athens at a shelter. >> offers them a kind of ref ununj. they have access to the internet. they can take a bath, wash laundry and they eat. >> he understands their needs well because leo, who didn't want to tell us his last name, is homeless too. well-educated and fluent in four languages, up until last year he made a living painting traditional greek religious
8:02 am
icons. when the crisis hit, the work dried up. his savings ran out and he was unable to pay his rent. >> i was up on the streets with a plastic bag, warm clothes, few books and ten boiled eggs. >> and leo is far from alone. homelessness has never been a problem in greece. when people fell on hard times, they turned to their families or they turned to the church. but the financial crisis has changed all that. and while official statistics are hard to come by, one charity here estimates that 13,000 people are now sleeping on the streets of athens. three times a day, long lines form at the soup kitchens. the orthodox church said it is feeding a quarter of a million people a day. the affect on the country's psyche says leo, has been profound. >> we're optimistic and
8:03 am
cheerful. now these things is turning into blackness. we are not ourselves. >> do you blame the banks? do you blame the government? >> first the politicians. first the politicians. they're rotten from the roots really. and that's why i'm not going to vote. not worth talking about them really. i'm very angry with them. >> many greeks on the streets here feel the same way here. they're angry at punishing austerity measures and at corruption in the government, which is why we've seen a huge surge in support for the left wing party who until a couple months ago he was virtually unknown. certainly this is a hotly contested election. for "cbs this morning," clarissa ward, athens. >> go ahead. i was going to say hotly contested but one we're watching closely. the turbulence created by this austerity and growth.

8:13 am
patients receiving in-person treatment. mental health professionals say one of the biggest challenges is getting patients to keep appointments when work schedules, child care issues and depression itself can make that difficult. future research will look more closely at phone therapy and at video therapy, which is also gaining popularity. but the bottom line, depression affects about 10% of americans at any given moment. while medications play a role, psychotherapy is the gold standard of treatment. no matter how you get it, it's all good. i'm dr. holly phillips. >> cbs "healthwatch," sponsored by lyrica. my doctor diagnosed it as fibromyalgia, thought to be the result of overactive nerves that cause chronic widespread pain. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. i learned lyrica can provide significant relief from fibromyalgia pain. and for some people, it can work in as early as the first week of treatment. so now i can plan my days and accomplish more.
8:14 am
lyrica is not for everyone. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior, or any swelling or affected breathing or skin, or changes in eyesight, including blurry vision or muscle pain with fever or tired feeling. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain, and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. with less pain, i'm feeling better now that i've found lyrica. ask your doctor if lyrica is right for your fibromyalgia pain.

8:18 am
italy, a major airline go bankrupt and an earlier than usual hurricane season. peter greenberg is here to remind us about travel insurance. peter? >> good morning, charlie. it's one of the most confusing areas of the travel proposition. there's so many different language problems and understanding the policy. when you need to buy it and who you immediate to buy it from. >> the question is who should buy it and what kind of policy should they about buy? >> there are a lot of reasons why. if your flight is canceled, someone is going to lose their luggage, passport, medications may be stolen. you may need medical insurance as well if you're in a foreign country. your trip could be canceled. all good reasons to consider travel insurance. >> what kind of policies, especially when you say your flight is canceled. what kind of policies can you buy? >> it's trip cancellation and interruption insurance. it's the investment in the trip you have. if you're flying on a $59 ticket on southwest, don't buy it. if you can find that, call me. if you have a sizable investment
8:19 am
in your trip, $6,000 cruise or flying somewhere with a restricted ticket. that's when you want to buy that trip cancellation insurance. >> that's only if they cancel the trip. maybe i have an elderly parent, maybe my job is going to change. >> right. different policies, different language. there are policies that allow to you cancel for any reason. the premiums for the insurance policies range from anywhere from 67% of the cost of the trip up to 15 to 20% based on the option to cancel. >> what about the fine print? should you worry about the fine print? >> you bet. there are so many different language discrepancies here. my rule of thumb is never buy the travel insurance from the travel provider hem selves. if you're going on a cruise, don't buy the trip insurance from the cruise line because that language is not beneficial to you. it only kicks in if the captain's middle name is murray and you have a snowmobile. it doesn't work. you really want do it from a third party. any travel agent can sell you that.
8:20 am
they get a commission on that anyway. don't buy it from the travel provider. if the travel provider goes out of business, so does your insurance. >> can i only get it through a online to shop for it? >> tons of places online. there are a number of organization that is are nonprofit that will give you a very good comparison shopping opportunity here. one is insure my one is square they interpret the language in the policies to help you out. because the bottom line is, if you don't understand that language and by the way, who does, nobody does. >> right. >> jairo glisks. >> you don't know what you're buying. >> you and the army chief of staff have the same problem. can't keep your ear in. >> i'm in good company. >> let me turn to one other thing. couple of other things. number one, where are we in the american airlines bankruptcy? >> the problem is right now, the creditors committee, it's down to votes. the problem with the votes, remember, we came on the show
8:21 am
before when the u.s. air folks went behind the backs of america and went to their unions and said hey, we'll cut you a better deal. lay off fewer people. they got the unions behind them. all you need is one or two more votes of the creditors committee and that could completely uproot the american bankruptcy protection coming out of bankruptcy for themselves. >> what's that timeline? >> it could be before october. >> there's another thing. speaking of unexpected injuries. you were in israel playing soccer. >> yeah. these things happen. there's a sports-related injury. >> the life of peter greenberg. >> photograph right there. >> playing soccer -- this is the royal tour show i do a number of heads of state. that's prime minister benjamin netanyahu kicking a goal. he did a penalty shot and got carried away and tore tendons in his left foot and he's in a cast. i didn't touch the man. >> nice work, greenberg. >> trying to broker world peace. >> he was a soccer player. >> he played left forward.

8:31 am
♪ ♪ >> harvey weinstein has been a fan of the movies for years. we welcome him back to studio 57. on "the early show," we're pleased to have you back. what is it between you and french cinema? >> it's actually political in a way. because two years ago the french passed a law, a privacy law that protects artists, writers, painters, filmmakers against these giant internet companies. the law that we, in this country, were too chicken to pass. because these big internet companies put too much pressure on. as a result, there's been a renaissance in france. dvds are selling again, people aren't stealing it off the internet. there's money to make movies. the producers have come along as a result of the great law like the artist and the untouchables. >> are you offering more money

8:35 am
wouldn't it have been? >> i don't think so. i think the two filmmakers interpreted the true story and who is the real person, we worked closely with omar and he infused his life into the picture. criticism has come because they ceo march and think he's like out of an eddie murphy movie in the u.s. >> in korea -- the highest grossing french movie everywhere. it's done so much business, it's almost on the avengers in terms of being blockbuster status. in in country, they're so wrong, they don't understand french immigration at all. this movie is on the french side of it, the right wing fascist people criticize this movie as an analogy of france, saying we don't need people from the streets to help us in france. we don't need black people. >> the oscar in france.

8:42 am
>> lehman was more of a surprise. we've been expecting this european crisis. the markets see an economic crisis. they want it fixed. obama sees an economic crisis. he wants it fixed because it's affecting the united states. but the germans and the europeans see the economic crisis and they want to fix both at the same time. that means you must use the economic pressure to get the political lead toers do things they otherwise would not do. it creates more pain and danger, but it does make it more likely that you don't ultimately waste crisis. >> what's going to come out of the greek election? >> i think they're not usually important. the egyptian elections will be worse if you want to think about what's happening this weekend. irrespective, you could get the hard left party winning in greece, but even approximate they do, if they want to form a government, they have to moderate their position and talk with the europeans. if you have a third election, there will be a form of bridging loan from the germans and the europeans. frankly, we're going to see next
8:43 am
week, in two weeks, in four weeks, we're still going to be talking about this greece crisis but we're not talking about the moment of truth for are the greeks in or out. we're not there yet. >> what is the moment of truth in terms of the collapse of banks? >> it seems to me that big moment there will be -- the big next moment will be june 28, 29 when the european leaders get together to talk about a roadmap for an actual banking union. where they would put together an fdic in europe, a sovereign regulatory agency. let's see if they get that done. >> go back to egypt. it's something important there. the egyptians who created the revolution are saying we've lost our revolution. what could happen there? what's the risk? >> i think that's right. i think that in the last 24 hours, we've seen the tipping point on the revolution, moving back towards authoritarianism. in five years back, we may say that's what happened. >> the army is take en over. >> taken back over. they never really gave up power
8:44 am
but there was a move towards a more managed transition. we saw the supreme court both say that the former mubarak era politician could run for president and dissolved parliament. the elections in weekend in egypt don't look like they'll go well for the muslim brotherhood, irrespective of how people vote. more violence, more people demonstrating, but ultimately the egyptian military not prepared to give up on the reigns of power in egypt. >> let me ask you. in your book, it's about this g-0 world. economic might, not military might will win out. people might think china. but that's not necessarily the answer. >> that's right. when china becomes the world's largest economy, which it will, they're not prepared to provide the kind of leadership that the u.s. has historically. different priorities and they're pressed dee mess particularly in a way that none of the developed countries are. >> yes or no, could the u.s. regain that dominance? >> it hasn't lost super power status. i don't think it's going to lose it. but it won't have the kind of
